Laurent Biertho MD
After being trained as a physician and surgeon in Belgium, I had the opportunity to undergo training in Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York during my residency. I then trained in Minimally Invasive Surgery at McMaster University.
I was then offered a surgeon position at the Institut Universitaire de Cardiologie et de Pneumologie de Québec (IUCPQ in Quebec city). Our Institution’s objective in recruiting me was to introduce laparoscopic surgery, in particular to perform a certain type of bariatric surgery (Duodenal Switch) for which our Center is internationally recognized.
Currently, more than 70% of the surgeries performed at IUCPQ use minimally invasive approaches, to the benefits of more than 400 patients with severe obesity operated every year in our department.
